Choose ONE of the following as the topics for your essay. If you do not like these, you may select your own topic:
Argue for a change in your current college or former high school, or in the school your children go to.
Argue for a change in a procedure in your workplace.
Argue for a change in your neighborhood.
Argue for a change in a volunteer or religious organization that you belong to. The change should be focused on a local issue, such as the way that volunteers are selected for leadership positions, rather than large-scale issues such as a change in the mission statement or beliefs of the organization.
